public interface MergingStrategy
An algorithm for combining multiple ConfigNode.ObjectNode root nodes into a single ConfigNode.ObjectNode root node.

    • merge

      Merges an ordered list of ConfigNode.ObjectNodes into a single instance.

      Typically nodes (object, list or value) from a root earlier in the list are considered to have a higher priority than nodes from a root that appears later in the list, but this is not required and is entirely up to each MergingStrategy implementation.

      static MergingStrategy fallback()
      Returns an implementation of MergingStrategy in which nodes from a root earlier in the list have higher priority than nodes from a root later in the list.

      The merged behavior is as if the resulting merged Config, when resolving a value of a key, consults the Config roots in the order they were passed to merge. As soon as it finds a Config tree containing a value for the key is it immediately returns that value, disregarding other later config roots.
